I’m not gonna lie. I didn’t venture very far from home during this weekend’s storm. I know some people love to frolic in the fresh-fallen snow, but I am, alas, not one of them. Save a trip to Safeway on Saturday morning, I didn’t venture out again until dinner tonight. And so, my updates come from no farther than my back porch.
What’s the best part about the storm, you may ask? It’s that the federal government is closed tomorrow, which means that I don’t have to go to work. I’m not a govvie, of course, but many nonprofits in the area — including mine — follow the lead of the big guy in town when it comes to these things. So, yippee! A grown-up snow day!
Here’s a funny thing, though. Even though the government has already declared itself closed tomorrow, Congress is still plugging away. On the way home from dinner tonight, we noticed the tell-tale light in the cupola that indicates they’re still in session. It’s probably impossible to see in this picture, but believe me, it’s there.
